Israel's War Against the Palestinians and It's Exportation of Weapons of Global Pacification with Jeff Halper, is the head of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions and a Nobel Peace Prize nominee. He is the author of War Against the People: Israel, The Palestinians and Global Pacification
We the people must break the old taboo on US-Israeli relations and Washington's permanent acquiescence in Israel's illegal colonization of Arab land. We must condemn Israel's actions ' unrelenting violations of international law, continued occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza, home demolitions and land confiscations. We must cry out at the treatment of Palestinians at checkpoints, the routine searches of their homes and restrictions on their movements.
Americans should question the US government funds that have supported multiple hostilities and thousands of civilian casualties in Gaza, as well as the $38 billion the US government has pledged in military support to Israel. We must condemn Trumps recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and his recognition of Israel's claim to the Golan Heights.
Governments today are waging a war against the people " whether securitization against asylum seekers in Fortress Europe, counterinsurgency in Afghanistan, or the subliminal war of policing and surveillance arising everywhere. And Israels contribution to this is key: exporting the high-tech weaponry, security systems and methods of pacification designed for and tested on the residents of Gaza, confined in the worlds largest open-air prison and Occupied Territories.
Jeff Halper exposes these technologies of control, which blur the lines between the military, domestic security agencies and the police, and reveals Israels pivotal role in the worldwide suppression of human rights.
